Another Nyanga born musician is making it big in the music industry with her latest offering.

Portia Korster,26, is an Afro house singer who has been bubbling under since 2009 with performances in the Mother City.

She has been a backup singer to local artists such as the late Mxizo Lona and recently for crooner Vusi Nova.

Korster has just released her second solo single titled Lendlela, which pens her journey from Nyanga East to Johannesburg in pursuit of her musical dreams.

It seems a daunting journey, but cool as a cucumber, Korster told City Vision that it has been a pleasing experience.

“There are many artists here but those that have been with me, they have really accepted me and they have warmed to my music,” she said.

Korster started her musical journey by singing in choirs at primary school level.

She said that her latest single, which follows he debut titled Wont Go Away, is her reflection on the transition from home to the city of gold.

“The competition is tough but I believe in my talent and I’m just enjoying the moment and I really am looking forward to my time in this side of the world,” she said.

She said that she is hoping to release an EP at the end of the year but her main focus now was to establish herself as a household name in the music industry.

“Currently I’m doing a lot of work as a back up singer in studio sessions, live performances as well as pushing my solo career.”

She said that exciting times were beckoning as she will be working with singing sensation Nathi Mankayi in her next single.

“It’s an exciting time and quite amazing that it started out as something I could do like everyone else just for fun back then, until I found myself in studio alongside some of the big acts in the country,” she added.

“I really love it and I really enjoy performing. Its young, vibrant and its really attractive to young people my age and older,” she added.

“I feel that music is the only way I can say exactly what I want to say and anyone can just get me.

Music is so spiritual and emotional and that’s what people relate to, real feelings not just words, and that’s what I pour into my music,” she offered.

Korster believes she is in the right hands as far as her musicality is concerned.

Pyro Beats, her producer also pitched in vocally on her new single.

Beats is a Metro FM and Sama nominated music maker who has also worked with the likes of Ruffest and Mxizo Lona.
